Meet the Maker: Maryam
Hi, I’m a mom, a wife, a local designer, maker, and a university teacher in sustainable design. My passion for creating and art started when I was a little girl, making silly dresses for my doll and occasionally for our dog. I loved watching my mom sew beautiful things as she was my early source of inspiration.
Life could get frenzied, but designing has always put a bounce in my heart. It’s my ultimate passion to create products that are fun, functional and produce minimal waste. My inspirations stem from beautiful colors in nature and I try to define them in vibrant combinations of textiles, leathers, trims and lace. As an educator, I have always underlined sustainability, simplicity and elegance while being mindful of our planet. I take pride in sourcing high quality, local and European fabrics and when possible up-cycled materials. I hope my designs put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.
